Ultimate Chicken Nachos

Home | Recipes | Mexican Classics | Nachos | Quick & Easy

Chicken on nachos might not be the most obvious choice but give this ultimate chicken nachos recipe a go and you won’t be disappointed. After all, what isn’t there to like? The combination of flavours and textures is irresistible and did we mention flavourful Chipotle Refried Beans, loads of melted cheese and grilled Mexican Chicken?!

The icing on the cake is the huge the dollops or guacamole and salsa on top of the nachos. If you want an extra bit of heat you could try using our Mango and Habanero Salsa or for a Serrano Green Chillies for a kick of heat.

My wife and I love all mexican food and these nachos are some of our favourite nachos around. The Luchito products are the best you can get in the UK and we always treats ourselves to some super smokey salsa. We probably add a little extra cheese but that’s normal right?

We think extra cheese is completely normal! Thank you for your feedback
